With the Stainless Steel top, this hydrant is the only one made to stand up to salt water spray and other corrosive environments.
Welcome to an innovative hydrant designed to perform and uphold years of vigorous use. This hydrant was designed by “Plumber John” who has been supplying and serving plumbing needs for farmers and home owners in Holmes County, Ohio vicinity for over 30 years. He was continually seeking a water hydrant that he could depend on and feel good about installing for his clients. Image a hydrant that won’t succumb to corrosion, is built to withhold years of use and weather and is simply dependable. Not finding the hydrant he was looking for, Plumber John decided to design his own. Here it is! The 401 Freezeless Hydrant is “The Hydrant.” Enjoy the satisfaction.
The 401 Hydrant is offered in either a 2’ or 3’ bury model, select the model depending on your freeze depth. The actual threaded brass valve assembly is at the bottom of the pipe going into the ground. As the top lever is opened the stainless steel rod inside of the pipe housing opens the water flow through the brass valve. This brass valve will need to stay below the freeze zone, thus the 2’ or 3’ bury. The brass valve will also need to have gravel, or sand surrounding it in order for the water left in the pipe to drain back down when it is shut off to prevent standing water left in the pipe from freezing.
The 2' bury is approximately 58" long and the 3' bury is approximately 70" long.
The operating mechanism including the rod operating the underground brass valve is made all made of stainless steel. Other less expensive valves use cast iron handles with brass bushings, and either a steel or brass rod. The fixed valve head is made of cast iron; however it has a durable powder coat finish, instead of just being painted. The main pipe is galvanized metal, which will hold up to most environments. A stainless steel pipe option is also available making this valve ideal for areas exposed to direct salt water mist or other corrosive environments.
Once installed the top head unscrews allowing the rod assembly to be removed for replacement of the underground valve seat.
Other features include;
• Wide stainless steel rocker arm top for longevity and strength
• Smooth on and off effortless operation makes it very easy for children and the ladies to use
• Special stainless design wear points instead of brass
• Stainless steel inside rod instead of brass
• Adjusting water flow
• Removable packing without removing hydrant head
If you are looking for a hydrant for commercial or just frequent daily farm, ranch, nursery, or home use, this is the one you need. Don't waste your time and money on the standard cast iron versions.
